About Terry Davies
We have lived in the London area for many years and know Vauxhall extremely well. Ian is a biochemist and child psychotherapist. Terry is a composer and conductor in this city of many musicians. Originally the attractions of the apartment for us included the quiet location and easy access to entertainment and cultural centres.
Terry Davies purchased this Apartment in 1989
Why Terry Davies chose Vauxhall
Having travelled widely, we never forget what we personally expect from a quality holiday apartment. This flat was our home for 21 years until we began offering it for holiday rentals in 2010. Our priority now is to make guests as comfortable and happy here as we were.
What makes this Apartment unique
It has been wonderful to see the area around the flat develop into the popular residential centre it is today. We love the peace of the place. In the hallway you might meet Philippa, our lovely neighbour upstairs, but you are unlikely to hear her. If the weather is good, the garden terrace is a little oasis in the city, facing the sun and protected by high plants. And yet, the West End (for fun and shopping) and City financial district are quick and accessible by foot or by using the excellent transport links.

First time in London
Beautiful flat with patio and close to two of the main bus lines for sightseeing in London.
Cozy, comfortable flat in Vauxhall
We enjoyed the flat and small garden. It was tastefully decorated, well equipped with everything we needed. It was well heated and had plenty of warm bedclothes which was good as the weather was cold. The transportation was efficient, the neighbourhood interesting and full of contrasts. It was usually quiet unless the neighbours at number 10 had their windows open or were out in the garden at night, loudly holding forth or playing music at volume. It did not bother us much as it was cold and we had all the windows closed, but in the warm weather guests might be disturbed. I'm sure this can be resolved. Thanks for a good stay
I could not leave anything but five stars for this immaculate, perfect flat located in a quiet section of London. Seamless communication between the owners began immediately (even prior to booking), and continued throughout our ten days there. The flat is within walking distance to a major tube station (Vauxhall) and Oyster cards were provided which helped considerably on our first day of "Tube" travel. The kitchen is complete with anything one would need to cook a meal, entertain guests, or just curl up with a cup of tea (which is provided) on the adorable patio enjoying the sunshine. Peter was a wealth of knowledge with regard to local restaurants, (Estrela was a fave), free ATM's, grocery stores, and bus, Tube or cab travel hints. Terry and Peter went out of their way to accommodate us on our last day in London, allowing us to leave our EIGHT suitcases in the flat while we enjoyed some last minute sightseeing before our night flight on Easter Saturday. It is my hope to someday return to Vauxhall and stay in a place that made me feel truly at home. In the meantime, it is without reservation that I recommend this beautiful apartment. Thank you Terry and Peter! :)
We spent a week in London visiting our son and enjoying the sights. This apartment was perfect. The location is an easy walk to the Vauxhall tube/train station as well as a large grocery store. The kitchen was well equipped for cooking meals which we did most evenings. The neighborhood is safe and the other neighbors in the building were quiet. Our son lives close by and so it was easy and safe for him to walk home at night after dinner. Peter was very helpful showing us how everything in the apartment worked. We really appreciated his helpfulness. We have rented places in Europe before and not always had someone to show us around. We would stay here again!
We recently stayed here on our honeymoon and were so impressed with our stay! The apartment was perfectly equipped for anything we wanted to do. They had a fully stocked kitchen and plug adaptors. They had Oyster cards waiting with maps and they took time when we arrived to show us the best way to get around. It was a wonderful place to stay and we would defiantly stay there again!!!
A very positive experience
The apartment was delightful with all the necessary comforts. The kitchen is a gourmand's delight. The flat has easy access to the City by tube or bus. Peter and Terry are accomplished hosts. We are delighted to recommend this property.
Er..., thank you, Jane! We're very glad you enjoyed your stay. It was great to meet you both and you would always be welcome if you make it back to London.
Within a 10 minute walk is Vauxhall's excellent transport hub (Zone 1) with many trains, tubes and buses to all parts of the city. And 100m away from the apartment are two regular 24 hour bus routes to the West End.
Many popular attractions are within a half hour's walk, some along the River Thames which passes nearby. Among them are the West End, Westminster (the Abbey, Big Ben, Houses of Parliament), Buckingham Palace (if the flag's flying the Queen's at home), London Eye (the UK's most popular tourist attraction), the incomparable South Bank (concert halls, theatres, galleries and cinemas) and the Imperial War Museum. Tate Britain gallery, Lambeth Palace, National Garden Museum, New Covent Garden Market and Oval Cricket Ground are all within 20 minutes walk. Wimbledon is 3 stops away.
The fast and frequent Gatwick Express from Gatwick Airport travels directly to Victoria Station, a 10 minute taxi ride away.
